    The filter portion of The Pop works great. Before and after tests clearly show that popping p's are filtered from recordings. The only issue I had with The Pop was that it's a Blue Microphones product and as it ships, it doesn't mount well on a Blue Yeti microphone. Having researched this before I bought it, a $2 flat metal bracket from [@] was all I needed to mount this securely to my Yeti without scratching it. I would have given it 5-stars if it came with a mounting option for the Yeti. There are other cheaper pop filters out there, but this one works (and looks) really well with my Blue Yeti. I'm happy with my purchase.

    Strictly in terms of the sound, it softens the p t and f noises very well. I tested it on my Yeti mic with and without the Pop filter... completely smooths out the wind noise but still makes these sound natural. I didn't notice it affected the other noises... for example, I'd hold a vowel sound (a, e, o) and add/remove the Pop filter with no noticeable difference.

    HOWEVER... and this is a big problem... the clamp attaches very poorly to the Yeti's stand, even when following the photo which Blue Mic supplied online. The more you tighten, the more it slips up/at an angle till it eventually comes off. If you don't tighten, it's just plain wobbly and falls off with the slightest touch. What I did was hold the clamp in place real hard with one hand while tightening with the other till I found the very tenuous sweet spot (not too tight or loose) to achieve a tenuous hold. I suppose I can probably trim an eraser/piece of rubber and clamp around that like a shim... might work, have to try that.

    The other very annoying thing: the neck doesn't hold the weight of the filter very well. Once you get it in place and let go, it immediately sags out of position. Again, you have to fiddle till you finally get it in place and don't move the entire setup.

    In conclusion, great sound, but the clamp isn't quite right for the Yeti (I reckon it's designed for a mic stand). And thus, I suspect that's why the neck isn't strong enough for the angle at which it needs to be to accomodate the Yeti. Optionally, don't attach it to the Yeti's stand and attach to another stand or the table.

    Comments about Blue The Pop - Universal Wire Mesh Windscreen:

    I really like the sound improvement provided and classic look of this pop screen, but it doesn't fit the Blue Yeti all that well. I find that insulting, considerint that Blue is the maker of both.

    On a seperate note, ordering from B&H was a great experience and I will always check their inventory for future purchaces.

    Comments about Blue The Pop - Universal Wire Mesh Windscreen:

    I use this with a Blue Yeti and it works fine. It's a bit loose when mounting the bolt on the back of the Yeti stand, but is functional nonetheless. Small enough that it's portable with the other Blue mics. Would work great with other mics as well.

      I have a Blue Yeti which their website says the pop-filter works with. You have to remove some washers and attach the included arm to the side. Doesn't look very clean but it works!

        It's a universal pop filter, it's stylish and it works!

        I bought this for my Digital Spark Mic from Blue and at first there seemed to be nowhere to mount it. After playing with it for minute or two I actually found a few spots to mount it.

        As for taking out "pops" it does just what it's supposed to do and looks good while doing it.

              This is a great-quality pop-stopper; much sturdier than any of the nylon-style models that I've tried. People definitely enjoy the look of it as well which is important in a studio environment. I'll be getting more.

                I use it on a Yeti in a shock mounted on a boom.
                Can manipulate the arm as you want.
                I have not used it yet on the original stand so I cannot say how it mounts on the stand.

                  Love the look and style. But installing on a Blue Yeti is difficult unless you drill a 1/4 inch hole in the center back of the stand and easily attach with the longer thumb screw running the flexible line under the mike and the screen fits and works perfectly. Love it!!!

                    This pop filter looks very nice.

                    As far as I can tell, it is doing a nice job at filtering the pops too.

                    It is, however, a bit difficult to use. It is hard to position the filter, and keep it from dipping below where you would like it. The goose-neck just doesn't stay as rigid as one would like.

                    Also, keep in mind that this doesn't fit the Blue Yeti microphone. Despite being the same company, there is nowhere to easily secure the filter on the microphone/mic base.

                        I've used the regular nylon pop filters and the Stedman (which is good), but this Blue Pop filter is by far the best. NO plosives, clear frequency response and it looks AMAZING.
                        Music is what I do for a living, so it matters to me how the pop looks to clients.. and they all love it.
                        What I don't love.... nothing.
                        Buy this.

                        Strictly in terms of the sound, it softens the p t and f noises very well. I tested it on my Yeti mic with and without the Pop filter... completely smooths out the wind noise but still makes these sound natural. I didn't notice it affected the other noises... for example, I'd hold a vowel sound (a, e, o) and add/remove the Pop filter with no noticeable difference.

                        HOWEVER... and this is a big problem... the clamp attaches very poorly to the Yeti's stand, even when following the photo which Blue Mic supplied online. The more you tighten, the more it slips up/at an angle till it eventually comes off. If you don't tighten, it's just plain wobbly and falls off with the slightest touch. What I did was hold the clamp in place real hard with one hand while tightening with the other till I found the very tenuous sweet spot (not too tight or loose) to achieve a tenuous hold. I suppose I can probably trim an eraser/piece of rubber and clamp around that like a shim... might work, have to try that.

                        The other very annoying thing: the neck doesn't hold the weight of the filter very well. Once you get it in place and let go, it immediately sags out of position. Again, you have to fiddle till you finally get it in place and don't move the entire setup.

                        In conclusion, great sound, but the clamp isn't quite right for the Yeti (I reckon it's designed for a mic stand). And thus, I suspect that's why the neck isn't strong enough for the angle at which it needs to be to accomodate the Yeti. Optionally, don't attach it to the Yeti's stand and attach to another stand or the table.

                        Needed a pop filter for my Yeti Blue mic. Though not a perfect fit, this one can easily be clasped to the back of the Yeti, allowing me to speak really close to the mic and get great bass without any plosives.

                        The color is a bit off, not the same shade of steel as the Yeti, but still looks good enough for those looking for an aesthetic solution.

                        Overall great buy, very satisfied.

                          I've only had a pair of pops for a short time, but my initial impression is that they're sturdy and well made. The flexible arm is plenty long enough, and unlike other pop filters i've used before, it stays where you put it.
                          I also like how the screen wraps around the mic a bit.
                          Nice pop filter, i'm impressed.
